Here's your Tuesday Lunchtime Link Dump:
*The Astros never made an offer to Lance Berkman:
"I totally understand and it was probably the right thing to do given the plan that they have in place.”
*The New York Post is butt-hurt about the Astros' potential impact on the AL Wild Card race.
*Players in whom the Astros are not interested (somehow this is news-worthy): Vlad Guerrero, Mike Carp.
*Roger Clemens has no plans to coach or manage.
*Jordan Lyles hasn't been assured of a rotation spot.
*Carlos Pena is mentoring Chris Carter.
